This is a meme that I started. Every Friday I’ll put a factoid based on a book I’m reading. The book can be fiction or non-fiction If you want to participate, just leave a comment and your website to share.
I’m reading a YA novel called Ripper by Stefan Petrucha. It takes place In NYC and involves the Pinkerton Agency.
According to Allan Pinkerton: The Original Private Eye by Judith Pinkerton Josephson
Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency-a private police force- became known as “America’s Scotland Yard.” Allan Pinkerton, called “The Eye” because of the agency’s symbol of a wide-open eye, became one of the most famous detectives who ever lived.
